The which will begin in will target single-family homes slated for water or sewer hook ups Even if some homeowners don't agree to they will mdi rectly pay for the expense esti- mated at to per house through front-foot assessment fees The fees will offset the cost of the program Anne Arundel is one of few land jurisdictions to launch such a according to Al Frank chief of water conservation for the state Water Resources Admimstra tion The project is expected to help guard water supplies by demand. It also is expected to slow the need for increasingly costly wa- ter and sewer expansion Officials predict the program could save county 49.3 million gallons of water a year. The plumbing devices could cut the average homeowner's water con- sumption by 75 gallons a day. That reduction would slash from the average annual water and sewer bill. Diminished water consumption also could lower residential water- heating bills by 10 to 15 percent Communities scheduled for utility hook-ups on the Broadneck Peninsu- la Cape St. Lower Mago- thy Beach and along the shoreline of south county west Shady Deale Chalk Avalon Shores are among the areas that will be asked to participate in the program. Residents will be notified by mail of the program and phoned later to arrange appointments with a con- tractor hired by the county.
